Eye makeup is a mainstay classic of any good makeup routine. So how do you ensure it lasts against the rain, wind and intense rays of sunshine? A two-pronged approach is your best defense.
Eyeliner is, for some, the one makeup item to take to a desert island – a non-negotiable must have. It can also be a major contributor to the dreaded ‘racoon eyes’. Fight the smudge with a heavy-hitting liner like L'Oréal Tattoo Signature Liner.
The eyeliner’s long-lasting, smudge-proof formula comes in an easy to apply felt tip format to let you craft all manner of looks. It’s not called a tattoo liner for nothing – it offers 24 hour, all-weather protection.
Apply it in your favourite liner look, like tightlining for soft and subtle eye accentuation or in a winged cat eye look for an on-trend, hear-me-roar style. With a product like this, you can afford to be bold.
No product makes your eyes pop quite like a good mascara. Like eyeliner, the products that give the greatest reward can, too, cause the biggest headache in rough weather. Enter L'Oréal Paradise Waterproof Mascara
. It’s sweat-proof, waterproof and generally ‘life-proof’. Choosing a mascara like this can lend some serious staying power to your style, keeping you camera-ready any time of the year, in any weather, and at any time of the day! Swipe it through lashes once with the volumising applicator for natural length and volume, or build it up to full-on false lash effect in a matter of minutes.
Adding eye area shadow contouring to your all-weather look is a matter of personal choice. If you’re the type that can’t go without a good crease colour, then make sure you set yourself up to make it last.
There’s no point shaping your eye area to perfection without ensuring your look survives the elements. Prep your lids with a powerful primer like L'Oréal Infallible Matte Primer
. It will instantly smooth the lid and seal your eye shadow colour in without creasing, smudging or flaking. It also smooths out any colour irregularities on your lids for an even eyeshadow placement. Primers are so often underrated, but in the case of weatherproofing, they’re a must-have.
